principle-based movement & self protection

In modern times, one must be able to take charge of, and maintain their physical, mental, and emotional health, read the environment, navigate conflict and adversity, and master the moment by mastering the breath. Fusion Jiu-jitsu can help.

Intelligent TRAINING

Now is the time to learn how to move, protect yourself, and train smart to avoid injuries, while having fun, in a safe, clean and positive environment. The goal is to be able to train well into our later years, with consistency over intensity, and be prepared to turn it up a notch if/when the opportunity arises. Learn how to be a warrior in the garden today, and secure your personal health and peace of mind for tomorrow.

Discover the art and science of Fusion

By leveraging the art of movement, and the science of self-protection and psychology, Fusion Jiu-jitsu innovates a modern, efficient and effective training program for every age, by combining Goshin-Ryu and Gracie/Brazilian Jiu-jitsu, Yoshinkan Aikido, natural movement and striking. As you learn physical and mental problem solving strategies and tactics, you will gain an understanding of how to navigate life with more ease, through principle-centered, and scenario-based techniques. An integrated program that allows students of all ranks and fitness levels to engage in a fulfilling mind, body and spirit workout.


There’s nothing quite like the feeling of knowing that your mind and body are strong, agile, ready and able to do whatever you want them to do. Studying Fusion Jiu-Jitsu teaches students that they can leverage their mind and body’s strength and power to accomplish things they never thought possible. Over time, it increases everlasting self-confidence and inner security – and that carries over to work, home, and every area of life.


Fusion Jiu-Jitsu is an adventure-based personal growth and life skills training program, that will help you get in to the best mental and physical shape of your life. It’s a great way to sharpen your mind, energize your spirit, tone your muscles, and control your emotions.


Fusion Jiu-jitsu takes a no non-sense, principle-based approach to movement and self-protection training, without the fluff. Our style is timeless and 100% useable every day. We know that the thought of having to protect yourself from bigger, stronger assailants might be scary, but Fusion Jiu-Jitsu is designed to help you overcome your fears and anxiety, no matter who you are. By teaching students the essential verbal, physical and psychological life skills for navigating conflict and adversity, Fusion Jiu-Jitsu cultivates peace of mind, balance, and a deep sense of preparedness in the lives of it's practitioners. This specific training is very powerful, and teaches you how to preserve and protect yourself, your family and your way of life.


By integrating fitness, movement and stretching, Fusion Jiu-Jitsu uses the breath to link the mind with the body, for greater mobility and structure. Let’s face it, life is more enjoyable when we can move freely, without pain and discomfort. Not only will you receive the physical benefits, such as increased flexibility, stability, durability, dexterity, cardiovascular function, agility and balance, it has been proven that physical exercise also stimulates cognitive capacity. 

The Fusion Lab UP-GRADE

In the beginner adult program, new students start training with a cooperative partner instead of against a resistive opponent, (solo and/or with a grappling dummy during Covid-19), to practice the movements and techniques. When the student desires to challenge their knowledge, skills and abilities with a resisting opponent, they are invited to dive deeper into the Fusion LAB up-grade program.

D. Davis, Business Owner

I hold Fusion Jiu-jitsu and Sensei Derek Bindner responsible for putting me on a better path in life that I am still on today. It is not only a great workout, it teaches you that when the going get’s tough and your brain is screaming at you to stop, you really can push past that and actually learn to enjoy or embrace the challenge at hand. I feel that has translated into not only me being in the best physical shape of my life, at 42 years old, I also feel I can make better decisions as a business owner and more importantly, a father. I now crave taking on new physical and mental challenges and conquering them… and then of course passing on that knowledge and mindset to my children, and others, and leading them by example.
